Union Cardbide / Dow & Bhopal disaster: Why is the US not as passionate about crimes committed and bribery of foreign officials when their own companies are involved??? In my view, this is a well run scheme targeted at foreign companies... unless the same dedication and passion is demonstrated when chasing US companies......its all a bit hollow...

Dear FCPABLog,

Why did you say that J&J joins new top ten FCPA penalties ?
Your post one day before was:
10. Panalpina (Switzerland): $81.8 million in 2010

Even with the SFO civil recovery settlement (£4.8M - US$7.7M), it's less than Panalpina.
Thanks for your daily explanation.

An individual, Jeffrey Tesler of the U.K., agreed to an FCPA-related forfeiture of $149 million in 2011. He was shown on the top ten list you're referring to, but not on our latest corporate top ten list, where he appears as an asterisk. If you remove Tesler, J&J makes the list at number 10.
